Contemporary glass leaped into the 21st century with new heights of expression. This exhibition surveys the work of some seventy dynamic global artists pushing the medium’s boundaries to make art in its fullest definition. Included are the field’s premier visionaries—Dale Chihuly, Nick Mount, Klaus Moje, Lino Tagliapietra, Marvin Lipofsky, and others, who made glass a vehicle for ideas, forever transforming the 20th-century studio movement.
Their passionate exploration of European traditions and pursuit of material mastery formed networks of artists, expanding the appreciation of studio glass across continents. More than ever, at the turn of the century, material handling, and conceptual exploration challenged how we perceive mass, volume, and form. From the life-sized, figural forms of Karen LaMonte to the cast-glass abstractions of Richard Whiteley, and the expectation-shattering sculptures of Masahiro Asaka and Christina Bothwell, the future of contemporary sculpture emerges.
